About SAM, South African Motorcycles.


SAM is a proudly South African company, focused on providing a wide range of scooters, commuters, on and off road motorcycles, ATVs and commercial models, all offering unparalleled value-for-money.  SAM was originally born into the scooter market, providing an affordable and entertaining mode of convenient, personalised transport at a super-low cost.  Over the next two decades, the small-capacity commuter market exploded and SAM’s range expanded to include a host of mixed-use models under South Africa's most popular value-for-money brands including Big Boy, GoMoto, Jonway, Voge and ADO, all sourced from our trusted line-up of overseas manufacturers.
Our widely used slogan ‘The Brand that Offers More Ride for Your Rand’, perfectly sums up SAM's objective. The scooter and commuter range provide an extremely affordable option for commuters who wish to own their own personal transportation at a fraction of the price of a car as well as the freedom of not having to rely on expensive or unreliable public transport. With the spiraling costs of localised personal travel, the financial benefits of riding a scooter or motorcycle are becoming more attractive than ever with massive savings on fuel, toll roads, parking, insurance, servicing, travel time and more. SAM’s road-legal range caters for everyone from 16 years and over but increasingly people of all ages are using our products as a logical alternative for their daily traveling needs. Saving just one tank of fuel in your vehicle per month could pay for the repayment costs of your own SAM scooter or commuter, not to mention the valuable time saved in daily congested rush-hour traffic.
